NBAA Update: ATC Privatization Battle

09/13/2017 1:40 PM | Anonymous member (Administrator)

Please see a message from NBAA below regarding ATC privatization:

NBAA was apprised last Friday that HR 2997— AIRR Act of 2017 was unlikely to be taken up by the full House for consideration this week. However, T&I Chairman Bill Shuster (R-PA) continues his efforts to obtain the necessary votes to pass this legislation in the House. While it appears that we have a slight respite this week, our work to defeat the bill continues unabated. To that point, I am sending along the attached information for your review and use with your members and general aviation stakeholders.

--The American Conservative Union (ACU) Foundation released a press release and policy statement last Friday in opposition to HR 2997. This is an especially important development as the ACU has a great deal of influence with conservative GOP Members of Congress (notably the Republican Study Committee and the House Freedom Caucus) and with other conservative advocacy groups.
